Meet Fr. Josh Johnson
While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.
Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
So, I have to share this glory story with you father Josh. I was introduce to your podcast a couple of weeks ago and I enjoy listening and I am learning a lot through it. Well this morning, I was on the “struggle bus” coming to work. And I on my drive to work I just repeat over and over again Psalm 23:1 and Psalm 91:1-2. I felt super lighter half way on my way to work. We this afternoon after a rather difficult meeting I decide to listen to this podcast on prayer as I worked and sent some e-mail responses. I was so moved by the when I heard you pray Psalm 91 when you are experiencing some type of anxiety. I know that this was not a coincidence and I believe it is God giving me a wink and encouraging me that I am on the right path. Thank you for your passion and love for Jesus. May the Lord bless you always.
